Decibel Magazine is streaming “Farmers,” the closing, crushing track to Your Limit, the proper debut by Japanese noise/metal outfit, Oozepus a collaborative project between members of death metal/doom legends Coffins and industrial, junk metal abuser supreme, Linekraft.
Issues Decibel alongside the new track, “Starting out with a combination of drums and guitar feedback, the vocals come through as if they were recorded in an underwater studio. Halfway through ‘Farmers,’ thick riffs slice through the watery noise, bringing Oozepus to peak chaos. Rumbling bass and reverberating drums meet the downtuned guitars and unusual vocals until maximum noise is reached.”
Oozepus’ Your Limit will see release on CD and digital platforms on February 24th.
Oozepus is a three-piece, noise rock/post-industrial band reveling in the physicality and simplistic brutality of early-era Godflesh and Swans. Your Limit is OOZEPUS’ first official release; a four-track EP built on battering repetition and singular, riffs, and propelled forth by rigid bass lines, warbled, underwater vocals, and massive percussive pummel. All of it is delivered with an infectious and hypnotic cadence, coalescing into a towering wall of heaviness and pressurized sludge. Not necessarily what diehard followers of Malignant Records are used to, and yet, sure to find appeal to those with industrial sensibilities and to those that appreciate all manners of extreme music, the Your Limit EP will also bring new listeners into the grips of the label’s massive catalog of dark and exploratory extreme music.
